Mitel to Power Communications for Teams and Officials During the Major League Baseball™ Mitel & MLB Present London Series 2019

May 15, 2019

LONDON--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 15, 2019--

On 29-30 June, Mitel will help Major League Baseball™ ( MLB ) bring regular season games to Europe for the first time ever. Transforming London Stadium into a ballpark during the month of June, MLB ™ will leverage Mitel communications at the centre of its technology stack to ensure teams and officials are always connected.

During the series, Mitel will provide a common, unified system for dugout, bullpen, video review room and press box communications. Since the games are official regular season games between the Boston Red Sox ™ and the New York Yankees™, the system will also record and monitor communications conducted to ensure compliance with MLB regulations. In addition, the system will power connections:

The partnership with Mitel and MLB was initiated last year when the league selected Mitel as its Official Business Technology & Communications Partner. Through the agreement, Mitel provides standardised communications systems for all 30 MLB ballparks in North America and the Replay Review Center in New York City. The system installed at London Stadium will include the same advanced capabilities, delivering a consistent experience for coaches, players, umpires and staff, all while meeting the real-time communications requirements of an MLB™ game.

Mitel is the title partner of the first two London Series. The historic pair of two-game sets will be played at London Stadium in summer 2019 and 2020.
